April Update April 22nd, 2013

The past couple of months have been busy.  In the classroom my senior seminar on Blake, which wrapped up last week, was especially fun.  I also completed a new essay titled “The usual panic in red, white and blue: Bruce Cockburn’s America,” which will feature as a chapter in the forthcoming book Get Away from Me: Canadian Pop Music and American Culture.  Now that the winter semester has nearly come to an end, I’m looking forward to getting back to work on my current book, and to writing the paper I’ll be presenting in early June at the Humanities and Social Sciences Congress in Victoria.  I’ve got some travel to the UK planned for the summer, including a visit to the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh and a whirlwind tour of Newcastle, Oxford, Cardiff and London.  And I’ll be meeting my brother in Glasgow to embark on a 100-mile walk along the West Highland Way.  If we can still walk when we arrive at our end-point in Fort William, we’ll climb nearby Ben Nevis, the tallest peak in the British Isles.  I think I feel a song coming on…
